The Clarets, with out a win in seven matches, didn't need to take something from the sport and have dropped to 19th within the Premier League after Southampton drew 2-2 with Manchester United in Saturday's 17:30 GMT kick-off.
Palace's first dwelling victory of the season noticed them finish a run of eight league video games with out a win and transfer up three locations to 14th.
"The perfect aspect gained, easy as that," Dyche instructed BBC Sport. "We're within the place the place the attention of the tiger has gone. Final season everybody was on it.
"To get the attention of the tiger again, a boxer has to get again within the gymnasium. We have to get again on the coaching floor and work onerous.
"It is irritating, they've given a lot to the trigger however then concern is available in, it is a powerful factor. It performs methods with you, and gamers get stretched as people."
The Eagles took the lead early on when James McArthur's low cross eluded everybody to float in on the again publish, earlier than Andros Townsend added a second with an excellent left-footed drive 12 minutes from time.
It may have been worse for Burnley, who had Joe Hart to thank for quite a lot of fantastic saves, whereas Palace missed a number of good probabilities previous to Townsend's stunner.
Previous to Saturday's outcome, the Selhurst Park season-ticket holders had not witnessed a house win for the reason that remaining sport of 2017-18 - however it was definitely worth the wait.
Given the best way Palace began the sport, it was tough to imagine that they had solely claimed two factors at dwelling previous to this match.
Roy Hodgson's aspect dominated from the primary whistle, with Wilfried Zaha and Andros Townsend doing the majority of the harm.
They deservedly - and maybe thankfully - took the lead on 16 minutes because of McArthur's meant cross from the left, however they may have gone forward earlier.
Cheikhou Kouyate was inches away from tapping in a Zaha cross on 4 minutes, and Hart needed to be at his greatest shortly after when he tipped Max Meyer's curling effort spherical a publish.
The Eagles missed a spate of probabilities within the second interval - with Meyer, Luka Milivojevic, Zaha, Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt all responsible events.
It felt like they may pay for his or her poor ending, however Townsend's goal-of-the-month contender made the outcome protected late on.
"I do not assume we're as dangerous as our place would recommend, and I feel our efficiency right this moment confirmed that," Hodgson instructed BBC Sport.
"It was a sport we wanted to win, however although we have not performed that badly, we have now not taken the factors."

Zaha shines brightest for Palace

Following his return from damage at Previous Trafford final Saturday, Zaha was again to his sensible greatest towards the Clarets.
The Ivorian ahead was a relentless menace, utilizing his tempo and trickery to place Burnley's defenders on the again foot all through.
He was additionally in a position to convey his team-mates into the sport, too, linking up notably effectively with Meyer and Van Aanholt, who charged ahead from left-back at each alternative.
The one factor lacking from his efficiency was a objective.
That is to not say he did not have probabilities. On a number of events he was in a position to weave his manner into the Clarets' field, solely to seek out Hart or a despairing block in his manner.
Though his lack of finish product could also be a slight concern for Hodgson, it should not take away from a masterful total efficiency.

Burnley's terrible type continues

Burnley did not register a victory in both October or November and that dismal type continued into December.
Their winless run does embrace defeats by Chelsea and Manchester Metropolis, however nonetheless it illustrates the rut Dyche's aspect discover themselves in.
The Clarets provided little. Their first shot didn't come till the 65th minute, and even then Johann Berg Gudmundsson's effort was simply blocked.
They completed with 4 pictures - none of which have been heading in the right direction - and Palace had 29.
Jack Cork and Steven Defour have been helpless to cease Meyer's runs from deep, whereas Eagles skipper Milivojevic was in a position to dictate play with ease.
At occasions, it appeared like centre-back Kevin Lengthy, who made six tackles and 7 clearances, was the one man standing in the best way of a marauding Palace entrance line.
England centre-back James Tarkowski has recovered from a hernia operation and was named within the matchday squad for the primary time since three November.
But it surely appears Burnley want greater than a fit-again Tarkowski to repair a again line which has conceded 29 targets in 14 league video games.

Man of the match - Wilfried Zaha

'Questions do get requested' - what they mentioned

Crystal Palace supervisor Roy Hodgson, talking to Match of the Day: "I am delighted as a result of we performed very effectively, we have now had groups on the rack at dwelling and never acquired the win we wanted, so it was good to get a win after a superb efficiency.
"It is good to see the crew enjoying effectively, and I did not assume we have been going to relinquish our grip and allow them to again in. We did what we wanted to do and I'm delighted we gained it with such a superb objective."
Burnley boss Sean Dyche instructed BBC Sport: "We have now to be a crew, and we're a bit stretched in the intervening time. The hassle's good, however it's kind of misguided in the intervening time, we have now to remind them how they will play.
"Questions do get requested, they're certain to - we're in a outcomes enterprise. There's work to be finished, the gamers are concerned in that work they usually want to be. However I've not forgotten how we acquired right here and the way we constructed it. I am fairly stage about that, however I do know there's extra must be finished."
